Not a clue what this is about, but the trailer is pretty badass.

Dunno!  I'll have to check that one out.  I've never seen it.

It's not quite the same.

It's of the era when the government was the bad guy, not corporations.

Getting ready to see this in 15 minutes or so.  High expectations usually end in disaster, so I'll just go ahead and say that it sucks.

I saw it last night. Not so sure how I feel about it yet. I think I feel like it's a really, really great film that, unfortunately, Michael Bay got to shit on in post production. It's also marred by a few horrible, horrible actors (the CEO's partner, for one).

I loved it... I think.  Crazy, crazy flick.  It was a bit difficult to follow in places because things are happening so fast, but the way it plays with time, perception, etc. was phenomenal.  I cannot imagine what writing this movie must have been like.

It must have been like copying and pasting Dreamscape, right?

(I need to see this so I can officially compare it to Dreamscape and not get shot down by my peers.)

If Dreamscape were popular, maybe we would know what you're talking about, grandpa. 

Probably going to see this tomorrow.  I'm looking forward to it.

Did you go to it or download it?  I see several downloads floating around...

I went to it. If there's a solid screener out there, I'm all over that...

Finally saw it yesterday....I'm surprised you guys didn't glow about it a little more.  I thought this was the most original movie to come along in a long time.  Movies rarely make me have physical reactions, but the whole last half hour I was just tense and hyperventilating.
